Community/Technology/Opportunity

Zerodivide through the Digital Storytelling Institute teams up with community-based organizations and technology centers to provide training, technical support, media tools and technology for community members to tell and share their stories.  Zerodivide, through digital storytelling, “addresses both the divide divide and content divide that exist in underserved communities.

The above link shares several digital stories from community members. I chose the Zerodivide Digital Storytelling Institute because of commitment of the organization to engage members from underserved communities with technology.  The tellers ability to share their joys, trials and tribulations via stories so that others are able to learn from and experience their life is powerful.  Sharing stories with others takes courage and they are learning and reflection experiences for both teller and listener, as can be seen in stories such as Grupo de Hombres and Shock and Awe.
